My name is Marjorie Chambers and I was born in Newcastle upon Tyne but was raised and educated in Ashington and Newbiggin by the Sea as well as living in the USA. 

As well as being a full time mother I have had several jobs ranging from a telex operator to working with the elderly as well as a commitment to voluntary work. During my employment at Northumberland County Council I became a GMB union representative. I am a member of the Friends of Josephine Butler Parent & Teacher Association.

I represent Bothal Ward and as an active Labour Party Member and Town Councillor I want to encourage new employment opportunities and quality, affordable social housing to the town.  I would also like to see cleaner streets and increased provision of activities for younger people.  

I work closely with the other Bothal Ward Councillors and Northumberland County Councillors in aiming to improve the quality of life for all residents in our community.
